    The Missing Links in the Fossil Record

    Dr. Stephen Meyer and Dr. John Ankerberg explore the problems with neo-Darwinism, and the suddenness of the Cambrian Explosion.

    Is it sound argument or otherwise?

    What do you think is the best argument against evolution in his video?
    Let's say that I suffer from a delusion. I will call this delusion "Fact-check Syndrome." I respond by citing facts.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Within the first 20 seconds...

    ...Darwin's theory of evolution is presented in schools as an established fact rather than a theory...

    Stopped watching at that point. It's clearly aimed at morons.

    That's provocative.

    It's probably at least two logical fallacies as well.

    Alright, I made myself watch it.

    I was right in my prejudice, it is made for morons.

    But here's one that respects the intelligence of its viewers:

    The original Dr John video was great and shows that evolution is built on a foundation of sand (or is that precambrian muck) and cannot explain the sudden explosion of complex organisms from most Phyla still extant today.

    The Economist video explained nothing, but had the same tired and irrelevant arguments that bilateral symmetry or eyes somehow speeds up evolution. But we want to know where those eyes and bilateral symmetry came from in the first place, and even more than that, where complex organisms with eyes and bilateral symmetry such as Trilobites, came from.
